Georgia Dean was known and loved by many.  Her circle included everyone; young and old, rich and poor.  She was a very compassionate, caring, and considerate individual.  She was easy to talk to; and she cared about your feelings.  Her big smile was contagious and she showed her love through the way she interacted with people.  She showered her family and everyone she knew with a kind, energetic and expressive greeting; one that would brighten your day even in the worst of times.  She shared tight hugs, warm kisses, and gave wonderfully sincere compliments to encourage and lift up the people that surrounded her.  Georgia loved people; she loved conversing and connecting with others.
